Blue cheese bites

This recipe is from my mom's 1970-something edition of the Better Homes & Gardens cookbook.  Prepped it ahead in the afternoon to throw in the oven at dinnertime to jazz up a pretty plain meal of broiled ham and steamed broccoli.  If you want, you could make your own biscuits instead of buying "whomp" biscuits (so called cuz you whomp 'em against the counter to open the package).  Double the half-recipe here for an equivalent amount of biscuits for the following recipe.

The end result is a pseudo-fried biscuit with a blue cheese zing.  The bottoms get golden and crunchy from the butter, and the creamy tang of the cheese pops up here and there without taking over the dish. 

Probably you could freeze the prepped dish, well-wrapped, but it's so fast to put together that I doubt you'll need to bother. 

Just don't freeze sealed cans of whomp biscuits, okay?  BANG.  'Nuff said.

Blue Cheese Biscuit Bites
Makes 8 servings

1 16 oz. pkg biscuits
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup (about 2 oz.) blue cheese , crumbled

Separate biscuits and cut into quarters.  Arrange pieces in 2 8" cake pans (biscuit pieces won't touch before cooking, but they'll expand). Top with butter and cheese.  Wrap well and fridge or freeze now if desired (thaw before baking if you freeze).

Bake 12-15 min at 400F. Pin It
